    You go to use the Console's internet browser that somehow takes up no room on the drive.

    ...

    It seems that you will need a GRAPICS CARD to browse the internet. Whoa, that sounds pretty important, what with the boldface and the capital letters.

    You're pretty sure computers don't really work like that, but you're too fed up at this point to care. You hate this thing. Much like a water balloon fight in late January, the Console has brought you nothing but trouble and frustration.

    Get your certified GRAPICS CARD from a registered grapist.

    Your grapist does not carry a GRAPHICS CARD, only delicious grape-flavored beverages and bondage equipment. Getting an item this important certainly wouldn't be that easy. Why did you even have this idea.

    Oh, dear triangle thing on the wall! Even though it is of no particular importance, you love it because it is not the Console. The triangle thing would never make you jump through ridiculous hoops. It is a true friend.

    You ogle it for a full hour.

    A simple painting you could buy at a garage sale. You know, something to lighten up the place. Nothin' fancy.

    It depicts a cityscape marred by merciless destruction under an overcast sky.

    It's talking about the Experiment again. Damn.

    Paintings, you think, are not usually plugged in. Only windows are left plugged in to conserve power, right? You think that's what is usually done. But you give this a try anyway.

    Surprisingly, the painting does not have any power cord at all. Even if it did, there'd be nowhere to plug it in. There isn't an outlet in sight.

    So how is the Console working?

    Much like finding out that wolf spiders were real, this realization freaks you out quite a bit. Maybe you should get out of this room before you go completely bonkers.

    Do you really think it's that easy? You think you can just walk out of here? DO YOU?!?

    You leave the room.

    You are in a hallway. The room you were just in seems to be one of many similar to it in a large building, kind of like an apartment complex (it might actually be an apartment complex; you forgot everything, remember?). There's a few more doors around, like yours, and an elevator.

    What do you do?

    You go a little bit down the hall to room 411 (your room is 413, a number that probably doesn't have any significance at all). This looks as good a place as any.

    You knock on the door. It's unlocked, and creaks open a bit. You lean inside.

    "Hello?" No answer.

    You probably shouldn't go poking around someone else's room if nobody's home...right?

    See if their Console is any more helpful than yours.

    Much like having to share a television with Rosie O'Donnell enthusiasts, you feel a little uncomfortable doing this. But what's the harm? You might be able to use some of the stuff in here.

    A quick look around reveals that there is no Console in this room. It seems likely that the one in your room is the only one there is.

    This room has a lot of similarities with your own, though. There are no windows, but plenty of light. It looks a bit more lived-in than your room, probably because it is decorated with plenty of pretty cool stuff.

    Pretty cool stuff that you are going to steal.

    Among this stuff is a CD player. Its speakers are quietly playing some smooth jazz. Excellent, you like your thievery to be set to something relaxing. You're just gonna walk over there and--

    "Hi!" comes a voice from behind you. "Admiring my music? Nothing like the sweet sound of a saxophone to help you--"

    "I WAS NOT GOING TO STEAL THIS THING!" you yell. You turn around to face a young woman.

    "--wake up," she says, completing her thought. "My name is...
    What's yours?"

    "Luke Dobson," you reply, totally remembering your own name.

    You kind of have an impulse to make up a clever excuse and hit her in the face.

    Make up a clever excuse and hit her in the face.
